    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about the three elements of a clear and compelling business vision, and this week we're going to talk about the six steps to building a remarkable workplace.


    Nice segue, don't you think? It's the people that guide and propel the workplace, right?


    If it were only so easy. From this week's guest's experience opening a shop a month as part of her organization’s UK start-up, she found that 20% of strategies lead to 80% of retention and profit and none of them are vague platitudes like "be nice to your people." 


    No, they are all practical, immediately applicable, step-by-step processes, and we'll tackle all six tonight on the show.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about about the six steps to building a remarkable workplace with this week’s guest: Mandy Johnson, best-selling business author, active speaker, advisor and executive educator.

    Last week we talked about whether or not HR should be split into two branches, and this week we're going to talk about how to become workplace fascinating.


    Of course there are plenty of personality assessments tell you how you see the world. But how does the world see you? What makes you most fascinating, and most valuable to the people around you? 


    You're all about to find out. Over the past two decades of research on communication, this week's guest has found that there are seven different ways to communicate and add value to your "audience." 


    We've taken "The Fascination Advantage" here at the TalentCulture #TChat Show. It's pretty awesome. And we'll give you the opportunity to take it as well!


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how to become workplace fascinating with this week’s guest: Sally Hogshead, creator of The Fascination Advantage™: the world’s first personality test that measures what makes someone most engaging to others.

    Workplace Affairs: The Good, Bad, and Ugly

    in Romance

    Hi Bedroom Playmates


    Most of us spend at least 8-12 hours a day, 5 days a week or more at work. We normally leave our spouses and develop friendships and sometimes intimate relationships with our co-workers. We spend more time with our coworkers during the week than we spend with our spouses (sad).


    Were you involved in a workplace affair? How did it start? How did it end? Have your partner or ex ever had a workplace affair? What was different about your partner that led you to notice the affair? Are there signs of a workplace affair? What if you and the coworker are single, does that make a difference? Is it acceptable to develop romantic relationships with your co-workers or your superiors? Have you ever slept with your boss? If so, did you do it for a promotion or did you receive any type of special treatment? What if your coworker/lover is sleeping with another co-worker? How do you handle that?


    Oh boy the joys of "office politics" lol I can't wait to discuss this! 


    Talk to you soon....

    SwCA Episode 075: HR..: Harassment free workplace?! The easy way to create one?!

    in Business

    SITE: http://www.courtneyanderson.com/swca-episode-075-hr-heroes-hangout-series-harassment-free-workplace-the-easy-way-to-create-one.html


    SHOW NOTES: Our HR HEROES HANGOUT™ series is dedicated to the unsung heroes that ensure that organizations achieve and sustain maximum human capital competitive advantage! In this episode our topic is, “Harassment free workplace?! The easy way to create one?!”


    HR is a glamorous and exciting field (it really is) where every single aspect of an organization is addressed. It deals with money (compensation, promotions, benefits, etc.), power (promotions, etc.) and respect (the concept of being valued). 


    Is a workplace free from illegal harassment (in the USA based on gender, age over 40, race, color, religion, national origin, disability, veterans status, etc.) even possible? Is it a realistic goal for HR professionals, executives, managers and staff? Is harassment an issue in workplaces only in the USA? Or, is it a global issue (in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, etc.)? I address this international report in the show and encourage you to access it (http://www.jil.go.jp/english/reports/documents/jilpt-reports/no.12.pdf). We all deserve to be treated with respect in our workplaces no matter where we are on the planet!


    It is a reasonable (and I would argue) expected goal for our HR Heroes to ensure that everyone (from the most senior executive through the newest staff member, clients, customers, vendors, and members of the public) are free from harassment at their workplace. 


    How is the goal of a harassment free workplace easily obtained? What steps are taken? What is required by the organizational leadership? 


    Let’s explore what this issue actually is and how our HR Heroes will take action to provide all of their constituencies are treated with respect (and without harassment)!

    Urban Therapy with Sun #120 Mixing Business with Pleasure. Love In The Workplace

    in Lifestyle

    This is about love on the job. Romance in the workplace.
    Have you ever done it? Know someone who has? Can it work?
    We know that it happens often enough with some relationships going as far as to result in marriages but what about the majority of them?
    What happens when people who are seriously involved or married mess around with people on the job?
    Do workplace romances create divisions at work?
    Is it ethical?


    How does Human Resources treat workplace romances?
    Can you be terminated for finding love at work?


    What happens when workplace romances go sour? Is it easy to work at a job when that becomes the case?


    What about sex on the job? Is that a violation? If so, does it automatically mean that you'll be fired?


    What about private business and workplace romances? If a business owner becomes involved with a client is the business relationship doomed for failure? Is there any way that that can work?


    Is it ever a good idea to mix business and pleasure even if there is any direct physical involvement or is it better to always keep it all about the money and leave your loins out of it?

    Show #104: Transparency in the Workplace

    in Business

    Special Guest: Joe Wiggins, Head of Communications, Glassdoor


    Employees used to be in the dark in the workplace. The employer would hold all the cards from the moment someone walked through the door for an interview to the moment they walked out the door on their way to another job or to retirement. Information about salary, the interview process, the benefits package, the culture and how a company had treated it staff in the past was restricted, or at the very least difficult to find. This has meant that making decisions about where to work has been, until a few years ago, based on very limited, incomplete and certainly one-sided information.


    When it comes to an ‘employer brand’, job seekers get far more information online than what they read on a company’s career site. So a company’s employer brand is not just about what an employer puts out but it is also about the voice of the people that interact with the company, be it employees, customers, investors, shareholders and others.


    This transparency will continue to rapidly change the workplace. Those companies that cannot, or refuse to, adapt will wither and those that embrace the trend will flourish. We are already seeing this today, with companies living their lives in the open finding it easier and cheaper to recruit and having much higher rates of retention.


    Joe Wiggins is Head of Comms for Glassdoor in Europe. He manages external affairs across all channels including traditional and social media and is launching Glassdoor in new countries across Europe. He has 15 years communications experience, specialising in launching and enhancing the profile of online brands. He has been with Glassdoor since March 2014. His experience in online recruitment goes back to the Millennium, working with Top Jobs On The Net.
